FDA Warns Against Methanol in Hand Sanitizers
The FDA has warned consumers against using hand sanitizers that contain methanol.
"Methanol, or wood alcohol, is a substance that can be toxic when absorbed through the skin or ingested and can be life-threatening when ingested.  Methanol is not an acceptable active ingredient for hand sanitizers and must not be used due to its toxic effects."   Over 75 products are now on the list.    Click here  for more information and a list of products.
GVR to Enforce Social Distancing Expectations
In their newsletter last week, GVR commented on their social distancing guidelines and plans to enforce them.
"Social distancing is required in all GVR spaces. 
Masks are not substitutes for social distancing. 
Members who routinely meet friends for water walking may need to refresh themselves on what six feet looks like. According to the Journal of Cross-Cultural Psychology, folks in the US stand an average of 2.3 feet from friends and just 3.1 feet from strangers. Six feet is a much bigger distance than many of us realize!"

COVID-19 Scams
In their newsletter last week, the GVR Council alerted us to some COVID-19 Medicare scams....
"Have you gotten robocalls, text messages, or emails offering free face masks? Or maybe you've seen social media posts about free COVID-19 testing kits, "cures," or protective equipment? 
Unfortunately scammers are using the COVID-19 pandemic to try to steal your Medicare Number and personal information. If anyone reaches out to get your Medicare Number or personal information in exchange for something, you can bet it's a scam.
Stop scams before they happen. Watch this short video and visit
 for tips on preventing Medicare scams and fraud. If you suspect fraud, call 1-800-MEDICARE to report it."
I just read a book on marriage that says treat your wife like you treated her on the first date.
So after dinner tonight I'm dropping her off at her parent's house.

I was visiting my daughter last night when I asked if I could borrow a newspaper.
"This is the 21st century" she said. "We don't waste money on newspapers.  Here, use my i Pad."
I can tell you this...that fly never knew what hit him!

Me: Alexa what's the weather this weekend?
Alexa:  Doesn't  matter, you ain't goin' anywhere.

Everyone please be careful tonight, there is a checkpoint at the corner of Kitchen and Hallway....Be Safe!
